Bio/CV

Curriculum Vitae

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University and a pre-doctoral fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University.  Beginning in Fall 2020, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University. 

In 2019, my work on causal diffusion analysis won the Gosnell Prize from the Society for Political Methodology (for the best work in political methodology presented at any political science conference during the preceding year). I also received the John T. Williams Dissertation Prize in 2017. 

I am broadly interested in political methodology and comparative political behavior. My research has focused on spatial and network causal inference and the development of machine learning methods for the social sciences. My work has appeared in Journal of the American Statistical Association

I obtained a B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of Tokyo in 2015, and also studied at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as a visiting student in 2013.
